the future. i'm with mark littlewoods the director of the institute of economic affairs he says that austerity measures it's a recipe for economic growth but they all a prerequisite littlewood why austerity measures so necessary well what we actually need is to get the economy back into some form of prominence we are living a normal sleep. it's actually all of the talk about austerity in the united kingdom is somewhat misplaced and that might be the political rhetoric but if you actually look at the numbers it is the british government's intention to add six hundred billion to the national debt over the course of this parliament that's to say they're going to spend six hundred billion pounds sterling. more than they bringing
2:32 am
in taxes and that's austerity i wouldn't like to see large yes and we can see by looking around the world will that everybody talks about the global economic crisis actually this is in very large part by western economic crisis caused by debt and i think that one of the lessons that we can draw from it is that spending money you don't have is not a route to economics ovation we have to begin to try and balance the books that doesn't solve everything but it is a prerequisite so what you're saying is the government's trying to enter mental therapy but failing. what's unbelievably curious about the government's rhetoric is talking as if they're taking a chainsaw to public spending that this is going to be the biggest package of austerity this is really going to hurt it's a bit like going to a dentist and the dentist saying to you this is going to be very very painful surgery on really really sorry but you're going to have to suffer it and then deliver in a pinprick it's as if they're sending out mood music to the money markets is if
2:33 am
they're trying to pretend they're being tough but the actual figures suggest nothing of the sort so the kind of austerity that you're talking about what would that look like to the ordinary man on the street. well i resent the term austerity there's a danger that the political debate is now configured in do you want austerity or do you want growth i want growth but i think that living within your means at government level is necessary to achieve that so i don't buy this austerity versus growth i don't buy the idea that we should only make cuts when the economy starts growing i think we need to actually get the government out of the way to allow the economy to grow it would be as if you were in a hot air balloon and so you were only going to throw the whites out when the balloon takes off no you actually need to throw the whites in order to let the balloon take off put that into perspective for me what does it mean in terms of schools and hospitals which is what we think about when we talk about government
2:34 am
spending at the national health service which the government in my view it in its total economic unwisdom for political reasons has really focused the national health service so we have probably the most socialist health care system in the entirety of europe i'm not saying that you privatized all of that overnight and there's a bite in britain as if there's only upon your retreat you want to have a national health service all the american system i don't much like the american system but i think that we have to be aware that cradle to grave health care for virtually any illness or plight that you any individual suffers from is simply not affordable or if we want to afford it then we're going to have to see enormous rises in tax chancellor george osborne talking about cutting ten billion pounds from the welfare state all those kinds of measures hitting the poorest and media in our society. i'm not persuaded by that argument at all really what with saying with
2:35 am
regard to the british welfare state since it was set up now looking back now best part of sixty years nearly since the beveridge report which was established the founding principles is that we need a welfare safety net that is provides what beverage himself described as subsistence levels of support and only ideally for a temporary period of time what we've actually seen with the growth of the welfare state is it's nearly impossible to imagine a person in british society who doesn't qualify for some sort of welfare support you might have housing benefit even if you're in work if you've got any kates you qualify for child benefit you may qualify for tax credits if you are a low earner it goes on and on and on we have universal benefits for the elderly if you are a multi-millionaire in your seventy's you get a free bus pass you get a winter fuel allowance one affluent individual said to me he'd like to use winter fuel allowance to help him to heat is indoor swimming pool this is not
2:36 am
a welfare state it was a neutral originally imagine this is a welfare state that has got totally out of control but covers nearly all human activity so i think you could slice it back and focus it on those who really need it let's say for the sake of argument the bottom ten percent of the population they're all there are parents rather than spreading this huge people over virtually every part you recently led a panel discussion entitled fifteen ideas to transform britain about encouraging enterprise in this country and the ideas put forward by a number of m.p.'s in three of them were put forward by you i'm just going to go through them with you and if you could tell me what you mean by each of them the first is super charging startups. what what we mean by super charging startups is to make it easy for somebody who's got a business idea to begin to get off the grant in the land of building a business before last few rungs of the harvest the biggest. decision is how do i
2:37 am
take on my first employee for example what sort of barriers to i face you're immediately hit by all sort of complex tax rules i want to make it easy for somebody who has a great idea almost you know at three o'clock in the morning to begin to get their business off the ground your second i dare is rewarding our educators and it's agreed really almost universally that our teachers aren't paid enough is that what you mean. i'm not sure that it's true that teachers aren't paid enough by the way but i don't really know what teachers should be paid so that there are two changes that i'd like to make the first is to allow profit into the system if you can run a fantastic school which you know teaches kids you know mathematics english and the rest i have no problem with you making a profit for what is a fantastically useful exercise for the next generation but i'd also like to make sure that teachers are employed and remunerated in the way that people are in the private sector so rather than teachers being on the back which was set in some sort
2:38 am
of smoke filled room in watchful between politicians bureaucrats and trade union like individual schools to sign mr bloggs is a great history teacher we can't afford to lose him we've got to give him a playwright's and schools will have to make decisions of course you know are you going to spend the money on perhaps building a better chemistry lab and better sports facilities or are you going to spend the money on trying to bring in better quality teachers those sort of decisions which every day you're faced in private sector companies should be faced by those one in our schools as well we've talked a bit about the welfare state that your third eye dare is winding down out of work benefits seemingly just when people need them the most. i think that it's true that people who need them the most at the moment are not advocating anything here which is even as extreme as what bill clinton brought in in the united states of america and it's two things firstly i'd like to see benefits begin to be time limited the assumption the assumption this is going to apply in all cases but the assumption is
2:39 am
you need a short amount of help you've suddenly lost your job you need a little bit of help to talk through perhaps for six months or so maybe for a year before you find another job that's the concept behind and you need to work hard in those few months to find another job but i'd also like to like to bring into the fact that you would be eligible for community work because what's happening at the moment with the government is that they all royally addressing a ludicrous problem in our welfare system which is that some people are actually better off claiming welfare benefits than they are taking on a job they take on a job that's not particularly well paid suddenly all these benefits get guillotines and before you know it you're working forty hours a week and you actually have less money in your pocket than you would to if you filled in some government forms that's not but i think there needs to be another problem that needs to be tackled and that's if you like the leisure but if your choice is to work for forty hours a week for let's say twelve thousand pounds a year or to stay on welfare doing no work for eleven thousand pounds
2:40 am
a year although it would be true in that circumstance that you would be better off in work you might not want to do forty hours a week work so it's in my view that if the community tax payers are coming to you all right and providing you with the money that you need to three square meals that i pay your heating bills have a roof over your head then it's reasonable to expect you to put in some work to the community clearing up litter in the park scraping graffiti off walls and the like and where this is being trialled in wisconsin in the united states of america it had a fantastic dynamic effect what happened was we didn't suddenly have huge squadrons of unemployed people scraping away what actually happened was these unemployed people suddenly inspired to. in falling real jobs in the private sector and low and behold those vacancies usually at the lower end of the incomes scuttled looking for people to work in fish and chip shops or balls or or restaurants those suddenly got filled so i think it's a win win i would actually encourage a work ethic and encourage a mentality that would get people who have been out of work into the labor market
2:41 am
what about the effect of the economic situation in the european union on the u.k. where hearing that there are a great is for costs this year in the e.u. what impact will that have on u.k. house holds well there's no doubt at all however one wants to blame all praise the united kingdom government they're not monsters or interestingly in talk and fear actually for the next as a radical change of course in the european union countries and the western economy as a whole and not percent growth is going to have to be something that we get used to so let's hope that that's the worst of it and we don't actually say a full scale eurozone crisis because when william hague said that joining the euro might be a bit like entering the boning building with no exits well perhaps he was right but nevertheless the united kingdom is sitting in the porch and if that voting building goes up we will definitely feel
